    I was going to do my CF 31 in black, but the paint job just went wrong every time I tried.
    So I made a construction site edition instead.
    The paint looks just like the safety neon yellow/ green. Trimming it in black really makes it stand out. I left the front bezel silver for now. I may do it in the yellow/green also. I need to visualize it for a while.
    Now I need to install the SSD and Fingerprint reader. GPS is in and working.

    Thanks to Jeff and Kerry for helping to make it all happen.

    The more I look at it, the more I think Karl is correct. Paint the screen bezel black also. Yellow green would work, but black will look professional.

    Here is a photo of the color keyed handle. I did the bottom half in black to match the base.

    Excuse the poor excuse for a camera. I was lazy.
    I took Karl's advice.
    I mask off the touchscreen panel first.
    Then I applied a coat of fine texture black followed by a coat of clear.
    It looks fantastic. I did not realize how much I dislike the silver bezels until now.
